New Things { Balenciaga + Fendi }





I started searching for these Balenciaga Black Leather Slingbacks in early November - long after they were out of stores, unfortunately - and after four months of searching, had nearly given up hope of finding them. But then, the fashion gods smiled my way, and a pair in exactly my size came to live with me!




As soon as I saw the Fendi Fantasia Platforms on the SS 2011 runway, I knew I'd them. They seemed like the perfect shoe to anchor swingy spring dresses and it turns out that they're kind of magical with skinny jeans too.

Tick, tock spring weather... where are you?

Ana -- Maybe I'll try to do a post on my shoe collection. I'm just trying to be patient until I can wear them again! The biggest downside of winter weather = no shoe options! :)

Elsiee - Thank you! I was really excited about getting these. There's just something about the color and the shape of the wedge that I couldn't stop thinking about!

Priscilla - Hello to a fellow tPFer!! You should definitely go for them! I can't wait to see how other people start styling these!

Thank you! I ended up finding them from someone in Australia - so they had to come half-way around the globe to get to me!
